The Peugeot 308 range has been trimmed down for 2017 with Peugeot Australia simplifying the range down to just six variants.
Previously the Peugeot 308 was available in up to 17 different variants!
Some of the big changes to the 308 line-up for 2017 include:
- Peugeot 308 GTi 250 - discontinued
- Peugeot 308 Access – discontinued
- Peugeot 308 Allure Premium – discontinued
- Peugeot 308 GT 1.6L turbo-petrol GT manual – discontinued
- Active and Allure grades get new PureTech 1.2L turbo-petrol engine – standard
- Touring gets 110kW 2.0L BlueHDi turbo-diesel – standard
- GT gets 133kW 2.0L BlueHDi turbo-diesel – standard
- GTi 270 retains 200kW turbo-petrol engine
So, for 2017, Peugeot 308 buyers will have the choice of Active, Allure (petrol and diesel), Allure Touring, GT and GTi models.
While Peugeot tell us that all models will benefit from greater specification, including:
- 308 Active gains a reversing camera and satellite navigation.
- Allure gains a reversing camera, blind spot monitoring, active cruise control, pre-collision brake, city-park (self-parking), keyless entry with push-button start and new half-fabric TEP interior trim.
- Allure Touring models gain the features of the hatchback with the exception of a reversing camera, which was previously standard fitment.
- The 308 GT diesel hatch gains a Cielo glass panoramic roof as standard.
Peugeot Australia boss, Kai Bruesewitz, said the 2017 Peugeot 308 range is trim, taut and terrific.
“These revisions have been made in order to increase the appeal of the highly awarded 308 range while increasing value and specification and reducing model complexity.
“The range now better mirrors customer demand and market needs.”
